20 mile commute 1 way for me and I get 22 in the summer and have been getting 18 this winter with a V6 auto 4x4. Looking forward to summer when I can get the 919 out. 48mpg no matter where I drive.

Im lucky to get 14 , but my mileage is low because of the way its driven.
PLUS I LOVE THEM G'S from a dead stop. These puppys will run .
Still better than I ever got with my Dakota and that was 11MPG !

I have 15k on mine and it didnt change any after 10k. mine has remained the same for the life of the truck until recently it has gone down. like i mentioned before, i hope that is just due to the winter blended gas

That's pretty good, actually. I have to take a 90 mile trip (each way) tomorrow so I'm going to watch it closely this week to see what I get.

Just stay on or around 2K RPMs and you will see great things in the MPG dept. especially on long trips. According to my SGII i was up around 22-23 MPG going to and from the sierras. Cruising around 85-90 mph for long periods of time I was still around 20-21 MPG.

102 mile round trip daily, probably 20/80 city/highway depending on traffic which i try to avoid. lowest around 19 with as high as 21 mpg. 6k miles, just over 2 months old. i just started putting my foot into it but the mileage didnt change significantly.

Latest results from last fill up: 17.52 mpg. That's ALL local driving, btw, which I think isn't too bad.
